The application process will begin in September 2019 for the cohort beginning in late August 2020 and the application and accompanying materials will be due on March 15, 2020.
Applicants are required to complete an online application. Please find our online application here: http://admissions.gradeducation.hms.harvard.edu/
Please click on the application link and then on "New Applicant" to create an account. You may save your application and return to it later if you need more time to complete it, but please submit all materials by the application deadline.
All supporting application materials must be submitted through the online application system.
Applicants should be prepared to upload the following documentation:
1. Curriculum Vitae
2. Letter of Intent (no more three pages in length, describing interest in the program, qualifications and area of research interest)
3. Transcript(s) (these may be official or unofficial)
4. TOEFL Score (only if applicable)*
*The MMSc-Med Ed Program requires official TOEFL scores from any applicant whose native language is not English. The only exemption from this requirement is anyone who earned a bachelor's or graduate degree from an institution at which English was the sole language of instruction. Applicants who took the TOEFL more than three years ago must repeat the test. The program prefers applicants to submit scores from the Internet based test (IBT) of the TOEFL. Please request official TOEFL scores using the Designated Institution Code: 3151. The program will accept IELTS scores in lieu of the TOEFL when necessary.
In addition to completing the online application, the program requires three letters of recommendation. Applicants must provide the e-mail addresses of three recommenders in the application system. These recommenders will receive instructions to upload the letter of recommendation and we require recommenders to submit their letters through our online system.
All applicants to HMS Master's Programs are required to pay a $100 application fee.
Please note that applications will not be reviewed until the program has all of the documentation mentioned above along with three letters of recommendation.
